Ballet

Ballet is a formalized kind of performance dance, which originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th century, and which was further developed in France, England, and Russia as a concert dance form. It is primarily performed with the accompaniment of classical music and has been influential as a form of dance globally.

Ballet has been taught in ballet schools around the world. Ballet dance works (ballets) are choreographed and performed by trained artists, include mime and acting, and are set to music (usually orchestral but occasionally vocal).

Typical ballet apparel includes a bodice, a tutu for females, ballet slippers (or pointe shoes when performing pointework).

Female ballet dancers are called ballerinas. The word ballerina means 'dancer' in Italian.

Ballet and spanking[edit]

Ballet teachers have a reputation for being especially strict, even brutal, as the form requires great discipline to master. In Russia and Eastern Europe children are ritually trained in specialized ballet schools (gimnazia) where discipline is harsh and punishments are feared. This includes slaps across the face and/or a whack with a well worn ballet slipper across the thinly clad bottom or thigh.

The harsh discipline plus the fact that ballet dancers are usually slim, physically fit, and attractive, explains the appeal of the "spanked ballet student" theme that is found in spanking art, videos and fiction.

Ballet-related spanking videos[edit]

A number of spanking actresses studied ballet and dance. Leia Ann Woods was a professional ballet dancer at one time. Chelsea Pfeiffer danced with the Martha Graham company in New York. Both Rosaleen Young and Amelia Jane Rutherford were accomplished dancers (and have played ballerinas on film). Below is a select list of fetish video titles in which ballet dancers receive corporal punishment.
